Kya karein kya naa karein, ye kaisi…

“When you have nothing to do, it is ‘relaxation’…but when you do nothing, it is ‘indecision’!”                    

………………

When I look back, I realize that emotionally, my worst days have not been when I failed to achieve much or committed mistakes, they were the ones when I was ‘indecisive’ – not able to decide what to do, which way to go. It is a strange state in which mind seems to get stuck in a ‘limbo’. Limbs lose vigor, and gravity wins ‘hands down’ as you resign yourself to inertia.

Bright mornings start feeling discomforting, and the dull evenings feel more relatable. In other words, you simply wait for a day to get over, promise yourself to bite the bullet the next day, only to enter it with even more tentativeness, and eventually ending it on precisely the same note that you left the last day on…

And what’s worse is that the state is self-sustaining, only proving ‘Newton’s first law of motion’ absolutely spot-on. Actually, such days are akin to ‘termite’ for your self-esteem. They silently corrode it…

………………

Well! The only way out of such state is ‘one good old-fashioned slog’. Yes! Just ‘move your a** off the chair’ and choose your pick. It hardly matters ‘which one’! As more often than not, you can always make a mid-course correction, if you gain momentum.

As they say in cricket “If you slash, slash hard”! Well! Virendra Sehwag knew the saying well. That’s why…you could keep him ‘out of team’, but seldom ‘out of form’. 🙂
